Ford Falcon Police car writes off BMW x5!!
Yes it's true!
A 2 week old BMW x5 was on it's way to a resturant in Lilydale one night and was doing 70km/h down one of the major interstections. Also coming through the same intersection was a ford falcon marked police car, on it's way to a domestic call no lights or sirens. The two collided head on, with the police car running a red.
The owner of the BMW X5 on asking why the car was written off was told,
To replace each airbag is $5000.00 the total cost of airbag replacement was well over $25,000.
this topped the repair bill, and the car was replaced.
Officers are being quizzed on thier speed to the domestic call, and the lack of use of "lights and sirens"
